Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

There’s some task, person or issue you didn’t take seriously enough and it’s become a problem. It could even become a bigger problem if you don’t get down to business. There’s no sense crying over spilled milk. You can evaluate how you didn’t see it later. Or why you didn’t address it in the moment. This Mercury retrograde, starting on Wednesday, may take you back to the drawing board with one of the things I mentioned above, perhaps even something that had been started before you went into your “den” a few weeks ago. You will have to roll up your sleeves to make things work, but I believe you’ll be amazed by what you comes to you and everything else that’s hidden up those pawed long sleeves of yours. All is far from lost, dear Lion. Often great leaps forward require us to step back.
